connect via the serial port:

Configure the terminal-emulation program to use the following settings:
❖ Baud rate: 9600 bps
❖ Data bits: 8
❖ Parity: none
❖ Stop bit: 1
❖ Flow control: none

other management tasks (transfer the file or set the management interface): https://library.netapp.com/ecm/ecm_download_file/ECMP1117874

Hi,

 

You cannot be in the same place as the switch?

Hello pedro_rocha,

Thank you for your reply.

I can, but how do I transfer the upgrade files to the switch?

pedro_rocha

set an IP to the management port of the switch and connect it directly to you notebook

 

transfer the file from you notebook to the switch using a scp/tftp/sftp server installed on your notebook

Fuad

"set an IP to the management port of the switch" How do I do that? Through the serial port? when I connect the RJ45 connector to both end how do I communicate with the switch? I dont know any of the steps. I am learning   in the job 🙂

Hi @Fuad ,

 

Here is a KB article that gives you additional information on how to upgrade a CN1601 or CN1610 switches. 

 

Also here is the installing FASPATH and RCF guide.  Please let us know if you have any further questions.
